The Chase is the second of the three-volume continuum entitled The Hunt. Volume 1 was entitled The Search. It recorded my search for historical documents that confirmed the truth about the life of Jesus, as recorded in the four Gospels of the Bible. Volume 2, The Chase, is a record of the application of the documentation found in The Search, to the truth regarding the life of Jesus, as recorded in the four Gospels of the Bible. Volume 3, The Find, will use historical documents found and applied to the life of Jesus to identify and conform his position as Messiah, forgiving Savior and Eternal King.
The second volume, The Chase, of the set of three explores the earthly life of Jesus within the context of known Greco-Roman history, customs, philosophies, and manners of the time. Jesus was born into this world during the time of the Roman emperor Caesar Augustus (January 27 bc to August 14 ad). He lived, ministered and was put to death during the reign of Roman emperor Caesar Tiberius (September 14 ad to March 37 ad). Jesus was born into part of the world governed by Herod the Great, a vassal king appointed by the emperor.
